Yesterday, Think Progress noted that in the first fourteen school days of 2014, there have been at least seven school shootings in the United States. That number is already out of date: One student was shot and killed this afternoon on the campus of South Carolina State University; no one has been apprehended yet. Earlier this week, a 21-year-old senior was killed by a gunman at Purdue University, and so on, and so on.
